Condition Report

First Italian edition. The work deals mainly with arithmetic, geometry and cosmography. Treats of astrology in the Second and Third Books of Cosmographia in general terms and from an astronomical point of view. However, astrology is here considered to be a science derived from astronomy. Cantamessa, 618. Francesco Barozzi, a Venetian gentleman, left behind various translations and original works on mathematics. Under the accusation of witchcraft he was tried in Venice by the Holy Office in 1587 and sentenced to prison. In our copy the three plates outside the text are missing.
